All innuendo aside, any thoughts on "Last Resort" premiering in a couple of weeks? Sounds like a remake of Crimson Tide.

Just thought I get some input from an old seaman.

I have no interest in giving you any input...old or otherwise. You may call on dire or see if rob will switch genus and species if you feel the need to scratch that itch.

I'll probably watch - just from what I've seen on the trailer clips it looks interesting if a bit unrealistic. The storyline seems pretty far fetched and unlikely, but that never stopped Hollywood. We'll see how they can drag it out over a season. At least they had the lexicon accurate with the brief glimpses we've had.

In any event, it has to be better than Crimson Tide. That movie could draw a vacuum on deep space......you know, kind of like dire.

Had a good family friend was XO on The Gudgeon SSN 567 in the early 70's who had the same reaction to Crimson Tide. He did like Red October and Das Boot.

Oh yeah, I have to think Das Boot rates well with all subsurface travelers; those few I've known liked it in any case...another, in the more cheesey Hollywood spirit, Run Silent, Run Deep, was well liked if only because Burt Teeth Lancaster just has to be the best over-sized able seaman there ever was, and anybody that wins Debra Kerr gets my vote--from Here to Eternity even...

Don Rickles was in that- RSRD. What a thespian.

The director arranged for him to spend time aboard a real ship so he could get familiar with everything. He told Lancaster about that and Burt said, "Don't worry about any of that shit. Just show up on time for your scenes and know your lines."

Burt was the best. Atlantic City baby!
